Curriculum Development in Teacher Education : Innovative Practices

"In this book several Professors, Research Scholars and Students have contributed their research papers for the National Seminar on Innovative Curriculum Development Practices in Teacher Education organized by the Department of Education, University of Jammu held on February 17, 2017 under UGC-SAP. Each paper depicts reflects divergent thinking of authors and is focussed on how innovative curriculum development practices can be adopted to make teacher education programme worthy and fruitful. The revitalisation and reorganisation of the teacher education programme is a powerful tool for the upliftment of educational standards in the country. Effective curriculum frameworks for initial teacher education aimed at developing professionalism in teachers are expected to have thier base in well defined standards for various categories of teachers. Therefore any reform in developmental practices of teacher education should ideally be accompanied by reforms in teacher preparation courses also. The focus of the seminar was to understand curriculum innovation from the perspective of teacher educators and the prospective teachers. It is argued that the deterioration of quality of education in schools is partly to be attributed to the way in which teachers are educated. `Teaching how to teach' is a complex work and places heavy demands on teacher educators. Curriculum innovation is considered as an essential strategy for bringing about improvement in teacher education. A major effort to rejuvenate teacher education towards modernisation, contextualisation professionalization has been made in 2009 through the National Curriculum Framework for Teacher Education (NCFTE). This framework envisages a two year teacher preparation programme along with the four year integrated teacher education courses. It ensures that teacher education courses are reoriented to align with the epistemological shift envisaged in the NCF 2005 and develops teacher as facilitators of learning. It includes the contexts, concerns and vision of teacher education which calls for preparing teachers for learning society, empowering teachers in learning to learn, and making teacher education liberal, humanistic and responsive to the demands of inclusive education. During recent years the epistemology of learning has undergone a major change: i.e. learning does not involve discovering the reality, but constructing the reality. Knowledge and cognition are to be constructed and affects are to be felt. Emphasis has, how been shifted towards constructivist approach of learning. The organizers thus thought the topic of the seminar to be innovative to provide an insight into the arena of teacher education. The seminar was organized with the objective of addressing few points of concern which include Curriculam issues, Special Education, Integration of ICT in the curriculum of teacher education which is in tune with the thrust of NCF 2005. Hope all the readers will like this effort and appreciate the same."
